is venturing out of the swing states today. romney is in pennsylvania trying to pluck that state from the grasp of president barack obama. 39 days until the election. pennsylvania is one of the states that is leaning toward the president, but romney is predicting an upset. >> i've got a little secret here, that is that obama campaign thinks that pennsylvania is in their pocket. they don't need to worry about it. and you're right and they're wrong. we're going to win pennsylvania, we're going to take the white house. >> well, wolf blitzer with us now. so, you know, from washington, wolf, we have seen romney confine his campaign to the nine battleground states. why is he now taking a shot at this state, pennsylvania, which clearly seems to be leaning obama? >> according to the public polls, obama is doing really well in pennsylvania. maybe he's got some private polls that he's doing inside his campaign that shows some other trends developing in pennsylvania. i haven't seen any public polls that would indicate he's got a shot in pennsylvania. i also haven't seen any indication that the romney camp
states that mr. romney finally sold those shares. he sold his shares the day before he appeared at this republican debate in iowa. i don't know if he thought he would get asked about them or not. now all of this it notes that he's not necessarily personally making the call on these investments. his money is kept in a blind trust. that said the idea you don't have to answer for investments made through a blind trust has been debunked on american politics. i thought this guy's argument was the most convincing on that. >> the blind trust is an age-old rouge to say you can tell the blind trust what it can and can't do. >> those rules include go ahead and invest my mitt romney bucks in the chinese oil company that calls itself a weapon and does business with iran just to spite us. while you're running for president, do that. you know, the election has already started. almost half the states in the country, people can get access to a ballot and vote by mail if they want to. you can do in-person early voting in idaho, south dakota and vermont. that also starts on thursday of this week
of the nine swing states. journal marist poll showing romney trailing the president by 7 points in new hampshire. romney trailing obama by two points in north carolina, that's within the margin of error. and same in nevada, two-point spread for the president. that's within the margin of error. so none of those polls really urge shattering, but certainly showing that president obama is -- has an advantage in these swing states. >> yeah. you know, the one that is i little surprising to me is north carolina. i would have thought romney would be doing better. the president, he carried north carolina the last time, but by a tiny, tiny margin. so that's a little surprising that even though it is within the margin of error, 48/46, he's still ahead in north carolina right now. if romney can't win north carolina, he's going to be in deep, deep trouble because that's a state, i assumed was going to be going for the republican candidate this time. maybe, you know, holding the democratic convention in charlotte energized that democratic base in north carolina. maybe that will rereally help them. i
to be the focal upon the selection. it is a state that was believed to be very accessible for mitt romney, a state that obama could hold. if he holds all six of the states in the west govern the area he is only four electoral votes short of victory. so critical for the strategy to hold the state of ohio. now, that's not happening at this point. at this point obama is broadly after a 45-point lead in the state. a few buckets of the data on the bottom you see that the worst thing for obama in 2008 was the white working-class. lost by ten points. it's up was that he would be able to expand that parging quite a bit. you wouldn't think it would have been that hard a sell. somewhat culturally conservative levels. among the hard-hit economic area. a lot of ticked off factory workers. you think it would have been an ideal place in which to sell the brand. that does not turn out to be the case. at this point we look at polls the breakout, white college and on college voters. robbie is not anywhere close to driving of that margin among working-class voters. he is, in fact, at best a few points better than w
months to years the romney plan changes timeline, speeds it up by giving states more power to work with companies and regulators through the process and therefore the candidate says increase america's energy production and security, something industry argues could be good for everyone. >> you can protect resources, air, water, wildlife habitat and so forth and still produce energy. the amount of impact we're talking about on federal lands is a postage stamp on the united states. it is very, very little impact. so it is not either or question. >> it is shortsighted because all it focuses on giveaways to big oil, campaign supporters. it doesn't think about what our energy mix needs to be five, 20, 50 years into the future where we have to make sure we have nonpolluting sources of energy, like wind, solar and other forms of renewable energy as a bigger and bigger part of our energy mix. >> in talking to both sides on the issue, david, one thing we found is, interesting, as in both interviews, both sides quoted former president theodore roosevelt saying that, to bolster their argument,
states and more votes from romney in other states. north carolina and michigan. a wasted vote it is a vote for somebody you don't believe in. i make a pitch that everybody waste their vote on may and i am the next president of the united states. based on my resume, there is nothing to suggest that i could not do the job but thati would do a good job at it. host: richard from new york, republican, thank you for waiting. caller: i appreciate what you did with that one debate when you mentioned ron paul. you and him what had been a good team. the only other choice besides ron paul is you. they said the less of two evils is still an evil. all this promoting the homosexual agenda. we have to have a change. ron paul was the grandfather of the tea party. i hope to see you on the show. i appreciate you running. guest: well, thank you. i support marriage equality. i think marriage equality is a constitutionally guaranteed act, on par with the civil-rights of the 1960's. host: john from illinois. john is an independent. hey there. caller: the only problem that i have is about the tax is
the president up 49% to 45% over mitt romney. again, this is one of those states with business background, economic background mitt romney should be breaking through. instead right now he is trailing. not by a lot but is he down here, shep. >> shepard: ed henry live in las vegas this afternoon. wednesday night fox report "studio b" will be live in denver for the debate and then you can watch bret baier and megyn kelly for cleat coverage in prime time wednesday night 9:00 eastern time right here on fox news channel. one of the nation's largest credit card companies has agreed to pay back $85 million to customers for violating what investigators say happened at every stage of the customer experience. according to the feds. american express charged illegal fees, discriminated against applicants based on age and mislead commerce about its debt collection policies. amex is the largest credit card company based on spending it will reportedly pay the settlement to a quarter million customers. in addition the compani' will have to pay $27 million in fines. you may recall last week the feds ordere

. if mitt romney is elected president of the united states. would things pick up? >> if he repeals obama care as he said he will . and new rules in legislation, yes, that will change the small nature of business. and a real tax cut to put a shot in the arm to small enterprizes. and cash to liberate for the use of the private sector and should get things turned around. these are personal opinions. >> steve: he seems to what he's talking that's why so many people watch him on fox business net work. >> eric: a crazed fan taking a bite out of danny. >> steve: some say the debate will be er. washington insider. coming up with the scoup, next. ♪ ♪ two people are dead. motorcycle club getting ready for a charity ride when several armed men showed up and started shooting. cops said they had a argument in the parking lot. an attack on adonai. he said a fan within to kiss him and bit his face instead . he is not pressing charges, but he said she might have been on the drug bath salts. gretch, over to you. >> gretchen: crazy . mitt romney and president obama two days away from facing off. what
message for governor romney and i think this gets him as close as that gap in the swing states and makes it a new ball game. >> mostly if you think mostly on the economy that would be really interesting because they have been real tight in the polls on the economy governor bob mcdonnell from virginia, thank you so much, sir. >> okay. >> you can watch the first presidential debate tomorrow night right here on cnn, also on cnn.com, live coverage begins at 7:00 p.m. eastern. >> let's take a look now at the rest of the mornings headlines. a video posted on youtube appears to show american freelance journalist austin tice who has been missing in syria since mid august. a video posted by supporters of the assad regime. the man is blindfolded and clearly in distress. he's being shofred by militants. his family and two news organizations he works for say the man is tice. but the state department says it cannot verify it's him at this point. >>> police in philadelphia are investigating an accident, incident that was caught on tape during sunday's puerto rican day parade. the video shows an office
. governor romney had said at i have an opportunity to save the state a lot of money, because if we did not take the federal money, it would have gone away, we would not have access to it anymore. with health care reform, we are able to accept this large sum of money and free some of the cost of providing care for people who don't have health insurance. host: we're learning about the health care law that governor romney signed into law in massachusetts with the reports from the boston herald christine mcconvillechristine. she's been with the herald five years. she also reported for the boston globe before that. we have a phone line set up especially for massachusetts residents. and republicans and democrats can call us as well as independent scholars. -- callers. let's look at some details of how the health care law has played out. 98% of adults are now covered. nearly 100% of children are covered. insurance premiums have about $70.veby take us through how this plan has worked out. guest: most people would tell you the effort to get people insured has worked out astoundingly well. the s
adviser to governor romney. >> i say this to make a partisan statement, but it is different. we spend years in the bush years talking about an imperial for the united states. empire means you have a power above the rules that makes rules are ready else. * not what this war of this. it is not ever going to work. and so i think with in the united states that can solve its domestic problems and recapture a sense that it is an example worth emulating although they have not nearly as strong as the root like them to be, there is hope and strength to move into an isolationist direction to move away from spending money and writing checks for international institutions, to move toward taking care our own business. look at president obama and his strategy with regard said drones and covert operations. it's very exceptional is the. is in this exceptional as the impulse something that could actually be more extreme in the next several years? >> i was with you right up until the end because exceptional rosamund isolationism are two different things. exceptional some can be the engine for imperial
to the united states given a zero corporate tax rate environment. are you hearing these things from these other two guys? no, not even remotely close. they're arguing over who's going to spend more money on medicare. romney says he wants to balance the federal budget, but that he wants to increase spending for the military. well, it doesn't add up. and if we want to believe in the things that these guys are saying, then i guess we belief in the easter bunny and santa claus and by extension the tooth fairy and, steve, i don't think thai coming. >> host: gary johnson is with us, and want to remind viewers we'll a add a fourth line this morning for third-party voters, 202-585-3883 is your line, and we'll get to your calls in just a couple moments. at this point, um, governor johnson, what's the strategy for the rest of the election? where are you focusing most of your time and attention right now? >> guest: oh, right now there's a lot of attention that's being drawn to what it is that i am saying. i'm being recognized now for being at 6% nationally. um, i'll just ask you an obvious question here t
said elect me and we'll be energy independent. romney has not said that. he has said with a north american alliance, that we can bring together mexico, canada, and the united states, and we can be energy independent using all of north america. but that's good because they're good neighbors. we work well together. all that can be accomplished, but romney is realistic about a plan. his plan is use our own resources. >> and we know that's a job creator. do you think he has a shot to win the election? >> oh, i think he will win the election. i think he has energy as a big component. there are 30 states in the united states now that produce energy. when i went in the energy business a long, long time ago, there was only nine states. there are 30 states now. so millions of jobs are created by the oil and gas industry in the united states. >> right, right. let me get your take on natural gas. i'd love to know where you're seeing opportunity, how you're invested in the energy space. you've been a backer of natural gas. honda has the civic natural gas car. can the industry really transform
post" abc news poll shows 49% of likely voters favoring the president versus 47% for romney. amongst all registered voters, obama hold as five point lead, but 52% of them are being a stros swi acrosses swing states, they favor the obama. the debate starts wednesday at 8:00 p.m. eastern. >>> and if president obama is reelected, one of the first job may be to find a replacement for geithner. the wall street journal reports the white house chief of staff jack lew and former clinton chief of staff are two top candidates. both budget experts and could play a major role in the looming fiscal cliff. >>> nokia's into another big customer for its mapping software. the "wall street journal" says the company will unveil a deal with oracle today in san francisco. nokia also recently signed deals with groupon and amazon. nokia a got into the map business with it purchase and has been expanding the service. and back to the banks, shares in banco have been suspended. the bank has announced it will report record write downs of 9.3 billion euro this is year and have suspended its dividend this month.
for the policy makers in the united states to put the fiscal cliff ahead of politics. in texas, a democratic caller, henry. caller: good morning. romney is about a year-and-a- half older than i am. i remember in the 1960's they were drafting everybody like crazy. from what i've understand, he went on the religious sabbatical and took a religious draft exemption. back then that was a conscientious objector status in the 1960's when they were drafting everybody to go to vietnam. that was before the lottery system. it was basically the old system. i feel like to the core of romney, he is two-faced. host: what does this have to do with the role of the united nations? caller: if he does not have the guts to stand up for this country, what makes you think he would be suitable to be president of the united states? host: here's thomas on the line. caller: i think the u.n. is doing a decent job. it is an enormous task they are undertaking. the bigger problem is our relationship with israel. we let them dictate to us on everything. the republicans are lining because obama will not meet with benjamin n
believe that government has a responsibility to care for them? >> of course not. i agree with mitt romney when he says his comments were poorly phrased. keefe said they were in elegantly stated. i think there is a difference. part of the philosophy of president obama is trying to get as many americans as possible dependent on government so that the democrats can stay in power in perpetuity. the reason i think that is failing is, even those americans, if you break down that 47%, there is a significant chunk of people, receiving social security, who have paid into it their entire life. that is very different from being dependent on welfare. that is a critical safety net our society has counted on that we need to insure remain strong for generations to come. even those who are receiving welfare right now, most americans do not want to stay dependent on government. they want to work for the american dream. they want to work to provide for themselves and their families. i think that is why the obama administration's objective is essentially using bread and circuses to make as many people as po
manufacturing in the united states and those are the policies we believe that governor romney and ryan are advancing during this campaign and policies they will put in place when they're in the white house. >> there is a poll, 87% of likely voters say the economy will be an important factor in their decision when they vote. obviously not a surprise. when you have confidence up like it was yesterday, you get home prices that are improving. we got decent numbers today. the market today aside has obviously been strong for the quarter. you have gas prices coming down. are there policies, will we be hearing about positions that argue they could have done even better than all of those things doing right now? >> well, look, this recovery is the weakest recovery we have seen in modern history. you still have 23 million americans struggling for work. you have 47 million americans on food stamps. the reality is that the obama campaign can try to paint whatever picture they want to paint. the reality is that americans are not interested in having another four years like the last four years. they'
see manufacturing jobs flocking back to the united states. are you hearing these things from these other two guys? no. they are arguing over who will spend more money on medicare. romney said he wants to increase spending for the military and balance the budget. it doesn't add up. i guess we believe in santa claus and the easter bunny and i do not think they are coming. host: gary johnson is with us and will add a third line for third party voters. we will get to your calls in just a couple of moments. what is the strategy for the rest of the election? guest: right now there is a lot of attention that is being drawn to what it is that i am saying. i'm being recognized for being at 6% nationally. i'll ask you an obvious question that has an obvious answer. are you hearing my name six times for every time you hear obama or romney's name 100 times? if my name was just being mentioned in line with where i'm calling, i think my 6% would be 14% and i would be the next president of the united states. host: gary from pittsburgh. caller: i saw your debate about three months ago. you r
the political one. after romney's trip to israel and all the statements that had been made trying to describe what life is like between israel and the united states under obama, i enjoyed reading what a woman over there thought and she said, he is just pandering to us. >> you're talking about sequestration. we have speakers on the hill who are kicking cans down the road. iran and afghanistan. this administration -- we are taking our forces out by 2014. some people in military say that it is premature. along the same way with iran, people talk about the red lines but if they are the color of a jacket. you can see them. i can remember us in north korea were they had a separate program. cowrie take action if we want to? >> with regard -- can we take action if we want to? >> with regard to iraq, there is a pretty strong level of confidence that we have a good handle on the program. with that said, there is always potential for surprises. what this president has insured is that we have taken the necessary preparatory steps so that the options are real. they are ready. i can tell you that when he t
, who can tell you who's slamming obama this week? or who's slamming mitt romney? the day or two before? it's time to tell these people, look, we're going to turn america back to the average citizen. it's time for the ordinary person in the united states of america to be represented first, than a special few. host: tim is joining us from stockholm, maine, a member of the third party. good morning. caller: good morning. i worked for ross perot in the '90s and i think one of our biggest problems was the sec. i was -- fec. i was wondering if he had any problems with the fec. guest: no. i'll have to say, you know, if we call up the fec, they have been responsive, and -- but having run congressional campaigns before, it's important to do the details to comply with the fec. if you're -- if you've not run a federal campaign before, there are pitfalls that is easy to fall into. you've got a good observation on that. but i can't criticize them. for following what they used to follow. host: one of our veers saying how do you feel about grover norquist in the pledge, how would you govern knowing y
